Some are from a 4H show breeder, others are hatchery, most bantam breeds haven't had the broody bred out since egg production isn't important. My little d'uccle hen that I got from the tractor supply was a great broody, unfortunately my dog got a hold of her two months ago, she was 8 years old, still a bit upset about that one, she was a co momma to a single chick last year, she latched herself on to the pair and confused the chick for quite a while. Though she could only sit two large eggs at a time.
